In memory of the late Sydney Pollack, who died earlier this week, Turner Classic Movies will show four of his films on the evening of Monday, June 2. The films are: The Slender Thread (1965), starring Sidney Poitier and Anne Bancroft (8 p.m.); Three Days of the Condor (1975), starring Robert Redford and Faye Dunaway (10 p.m.); Tootsie (1982), starring Dustin Hoffman and Jessica Lange (midnight); and Jeremiah Johnson (1972), starring Robert Redford and Will Geer (2 a.m.).
The network also announced that its new original program, "Elvis Mitchell: Under the Influence," which begins airing July 7, will include in its premiere episode an interview with Pollack.
It's great to see these four films again, although I'd quibble with a repeat showing of Three Days of the Condor after TCM already broadcast the spy thriller last night. (Must be a TCM vault/archive issue.) Still, another chance to remember a Hollywood pro.
